Property Club Property Market Insights

Happy Australia Day for this week-end!

As we head into 2019, some interesting news coming through Australia is expected to welcome a mammoth 10 million overseas visitors to its shores this year and while the number 1 country for our overseas visitors wouldn’t surprise, do you know who the number 2 country is and how actually close they were to being number 1?

It was reported that In the 12 months to September last year, 1.08 million people came from China, which topped the list, followed closely by 1.03 million New Zealand visitors!

Tourism Australia said there were a total of 9.2 million international visitors in the year ending October 2018, representing an increase of 5.2 per cent on the previous year.

In all over the past five years, overseas visitor numbers have boomed by 44 per cent.

Last month, tourism operators were gearing up for their biggest December ever with visitor numbers expected to top 800,000 over the festive period.

And while government advertising campaigns abroad remain important, Ms Hassan said happy tourists are also helping to spread the word.

“Technology makes this easier because there’s no better way to showcase the country than by visitors sharing their experiences first-hand on social media,” she said.

Further positives for our property and job markets, as obviously these visitors go to tourist attractions, dining and require services while they are here!
